What Denomination is Abide?

At Abide, we often get asked what denomination we adhere to. As the #1 biblical meditation app in the App Store, Abide strives to be an ecumenical source that helps people connect with God no matter where they are on their spiritual journey. Here are the basics of what we believe.

Abide is a community centered on Christ that embraces authors from across the Christian family. We believe that the Bible is true, and we profess the  Nicene Creed as our statement of faith.

What We Believe

We believe anyone who calls on the name of Jesus will be saved (Romans 10:13), and that salvation is by grace and grace alone (Ephesians 2:8-9).

We believe that prayer changes things.

We desire to connect people with God through biblical meditation, an ancient practice first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 24:63.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16-17). That’s why all of our meditations and sleep stories are biblically based, founded on Scripture, and as theologically accurate as we can make them this side of heaven.

Living a Faithful Life

We believe that, at its core, Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship with Jesus. It’s not something you do, it’s something you are. Who you are in Christ matters so much more than the church you attend, what denomination you are, or the religious activities you pursue.

Our team of dedicated writers, techs, narrators, designers, managers, and customer-care agents comes from diverse backgrounds and denominational affiliations, but all aspire to have a robust relationship with Jesus Christ. From our youngest 20-somethings to our oldest 60-somethings, the Abide family is passionate about helping people grow closer to God and experience his peace through biblical meditation.

We welcome comments, questions, and critiques as long as they are presented in the spirit of Jesus as stated in John 13:34-35. We have feelings, just like regular people because, well, we are regular people. Please be kind if you contact us.
